I've had terrible pain in my left cheek for over 3 months and was waiting for an NHS ent appointment.... but when I rang up they had lost the referral... well I was having such a bad time of it I decieded to ring a private ent consultant and after paying £400 was seen the same day. He did a rigid nasal endoscopy and concluded my sinuses were clear and looked normal!!! What the heck... no wonder anti biotics weren't helping!! So it's not my teeth as I've already been down the dental route and now I've been told its not my sinuses either!!!so why am I in sooooo much pain??? Well I've been to see my GP today and he concluded nerve pain due to previous dental extractions and sinus infections!!! I've been started on a medication called gabapentin... so fingers crossed it works!!! I will have to come off this forum and join one for atypical facial pain instead!! I wish everyone well and hope you all feel better very soon.
